PALMERSTON & RURAL SWIMMING CLUB
The Sharks swim club has a growing history of over 30 years and has been active in Palmerston since just before the council pool first opened in 1988.
The clubs mission and values are about developing and supporting personal excellence in a family friendly environment. We know that swim clubs and sport are a great place for individuals to grow and be supported by a healthy team network.
Our teams successes are measured in the support we offer to individuals and families but also include many competitive performance outcomes and team selections as well.
There is no need for an assessment for the Parent & Child Classes as these classes are broken into age-group progressions.
Parents are encouraged (and asked) to wear a rashie or a loose t-shirt in the water to give your child something to grab. Otherwise you may find you will lose some chest hair or have your bikini straps undone by accident!
